Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar has reacted to the issue of Naira scarcity which has led to controversy across the country.
The Sultan who appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to address the problem to prevent an uprising, added that it has brought hunger and anger in the country.
Speaking at a two-day conference by the Kano State government on livestock reforms and mitigation of associated conflicts, the Monarch said;
“Let’s keep politics aside. The issues of development, especially for the common man, (should be prioritised).
“These people that God Almighty gave leadership over, one day, God forbid, will rise (against us).
“After all the English by professors (at the conference), how do we get these developments down to the common man who is a farmer, the common Fulani man who doesn’t know anything about development? He only cares about cattle.
“The people are hungry ? is there money? People are angry and hungry. Let’s see how we can douse the tension.”
